NASA recently announced the discovery of a new, Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of a nearby star called TOI-700. We are two of the astronomers who led the discovery of this planet, called TOI-700 e is just over 100 light-years from Earth — too far away for humans to visit — but we do know that it is similar in size to Earth, likely rocky in composition and could potentially support life.
